“2nd visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Just back from an over night stay at the Sandymount Hotel after booking with Lidl breaks, great value. We've stayed here before when it was the Mount Herbert. We were heading to a show in the Olympia Theater to see The Real McCoy,if you get a chance to see it, it's well worth it, great laugh, great acting. With the dart station near by its a great facility & lovely way to travel into the city. Free parking at the hotel is always a great plus.

At check in was asked if I wanted to pay now, I said no that I'd pay at check out. She took my credit card details etc. I wanted to see what the room was like first. Never been asked to pay like that before. Our room was Executive 406 very nice, crisp white linen, dressing gowns, bottled water, lovely toiletries + disposable razor and shaving cream nice touch. No view but didn't mind that. I didn't sleep well, I could hear snoring next door,It was like it was in the room with us, only thing I wish I could have told them to shut up.

We had evening meal before heading off. Seafood Chowder & Caesar Salad were lovely. Had battered smoked fish + chips. Didn't like the wooden plate it was served on, but that's me, I would always prefer clean white plates. Deserts were lovely. Daniel & Jessie were very nice in the bar.

Breakfast was self service, which was very nice with plenty of choice. Would have liked a pot of coffee rather than filling the cup at the table.

we will be back.

I went for a weekend break with my husband , my siblings and their spouses . I can honestly say there is nothing bad I can say about our stay. The rooms were lovely and spacious . The staff were all very helpful and the food was great. I would definitely stay here again. The location was also very suitable as it was in a nice quiet area but still within walking distance of the train station .

stayed here for the concert of robbie Williams, we had booked this hotel a very long time before we knew he would give a concert so we payed a very good price for the rooms. the hotel is very close to the aviva stadion and also close to the train station. The rooms are very nice and you have everything you need. Reception were very nice and helpt us well with all the questions that we had. we will return to this hotel

Hi just cancelled my stay here for sat 29th June, as I stayed here in September to attend lady Gaga concert, it cost 179 euro, Now they have put the price up to 249 euro per night ,for the Rod Stewart concert... GREEDY, TOTAL DISGRACE,AND A MAJOR CASE OF RIP OF IRELAND ....The hotel itself is of an ok standard ,You are paying 5 star prices for 2 star accommodation, is in a great location, if attending Aviva stadium....But by know way worth the money..Much nicer places to stay in the area or get the dart from the city...would not recommend !!!!!

Thank you for your review. In common with most businesses, prices increase when demand is high, to compensate for rates which are frequently loss making at times of low demand.

First time I've stayed here, and I was quite impressed by the exterior. Unfortunately the interior doesn't quite match up, with staff on check-in 'distracted' and quite offhand. The room I stayed in would be best described as 'tired' with a little more attention to cleaning needed, particularly in the bathroom. Overall, it's okay for a night or two, but there are vastly superior hotels in the same price range in the area, so this was a bit of a let down.
